Autumn Highlights - October 2017

RETURN TO THE VICTORIA MUSEUM, KIEV
I made another visit to the Victoria Museum of Costumes in Kiev, to present Why do we need Museums. My aim was to inspire Ukrainian business leaders and officials to support and invest in the sector.  The focus of my talk was not only on the  economic benefits museums can bring to a city or a region, I also reiterated the intrinsic values to individuals and communities.

The opening of the Victoria Museum demonstrates Mrs Lysenko’s vision and commitment.

MIRRORS BY PIP DICKENS
Pip Dickens's new body of work Mirrors presents paintings which are incongruous - some are whimsical, some may seem dark or disturbing, but most attempt to question through animation of the inanimate to what degree we use masks of our own making, to deflect others from seeing our true selves. I would like to thank Pip Dickens for giving me the opportunity to write the foreword of her new exhibition catalogue.

THE VISUAL LANGUAGE OF SPACE - OUR ARTIST IN FOCUS - ANNE HARILD - SEPTEMBER 2017

Anne Harild is a Danish artist who creates film animations, site-specific installations and collages. She investigates the inherent use of architectural structures and their physical appearances in her work. Informed by the urban and natural environment she plays with grids, lines, angles, geometric shapes and textures, resulting in constructions we see, experience and encounter in our cities and open expanses.
